the post-newtown witch hunt the last week. it's unfortunate. this should be a time of sober reflection and an inclusive time for every american, with a diverse viewpoint, to be a participant in the national conversation about gun violence, about the culture, and somehow so many people, particularly in the crazed anti-gun liberal media, have demonized the n.r.a. and its millions of law abiding, peaceful gun owners who are practicing their constitutionally protected second amendment rights. self-defense, as so many people out there know, is oft often, and they put forth some good ideas, good ideas that have been embraced across the country in school districts in oklahoma, in texas. there are many, many, many armed teachers in this country and they deserve a voice, too. >> clayton: absolutely. you talk about a reasoned discussion though, that's what many conservatives thought was missing from this press conference and you mentioned the liberal media, but the new york post in the front page called him a loon, the n.r.a. loon in a bizarre rant over newtown and they felt what was missing-- i
. this is from the journal news, the newspaper. the massacre in newtown, connecticut remains top of mind for many of our readers. our readers are understandably interested to know about guns in their neighborhood. we possibilitied the names and addresses of residents who are licensed to own hand guns through routine freedom of information law public records request. michael, that makes -- does that implicitly assume that anybody who owns a gun is going to go off on some massacre like what we saw up in connecticut? >> well, yes. this list exposes an inherent bias among the publishers and editors of this newspaper that somehow own ago hand gun is socially unacceptable. using the tactics of the extreme left to try to embarrass or bully or to try to convince these people that whatever they're doing that's inconsistent with the beliefs of the publisher is somehow unacceptable. we certainly want to insure that there is a right of all constitutional rights to be able to possess hand guns, as well as be able to speak about whatever you want to publish whatever you want. in this case, you have to preserve
the chairman of the rules committee. . mr. speaker, when i mention hurricane sandy and the tragedy in newtown, connecticut, many wonder what do they have in common? gun tragedy, the loss of 26 lives, and americans suffering from a devastating storm, certainly our hearts goes out to those babies who were lost. but it really speaks to americans in need, and i guess that's why i'm so troubled to be on the floor today, because the framework that we have says to america that when you're in need we will not as this congress and this government be prepared to help you. i think what is disappointing and i know for the speaker, it is probably the same case as i am speaking because just about three days ago we thought there was a deal between the white house and the framework that was offered and the leadership of this house. it's disappointing that in the course of a couple days we've come to a situation where this plan, plan b, raises only about $300 billion from high-income households and the centers for budget priorities suggest that millionaires will get $108,500 per $1 million, over $1 million in
package. given everything a country has been through, from a superstar and sandy to the tragedy in newtown, the last thing americans need is for politicians to refuse to compromise, putting the brakes on economic growth and job creation. i urge my colleagues to end the political charade. let's get back to the serious task of negotiating a balanced deficit-reduction plan. let's do it now, today, we can do it. >> the gentleman from wisconsin. >> mr. speaker, i want to add my congratulations to the gentlewoman from new york and become the ranking member of the appropriations committee. she has our respect and congratulations. i would like to yield one minute to the distinguished majority leader. >> i thank the gentleman from wisconsin, chairman of the budget committee. mr. speaker, i rise today to urge support for the measures before us to replace the sequester and reduce the deficit and extend permanent tax relief to the middle-class and hundreds of thousands of small business people. for the past weeks and months, as people have been looking for jobs and budgeting for their expenses, we hav
. and somewhere we seem to go on astray. we go astray now from what we learn in newtown, connecticut. we go astray when we see how some of us treat each other in this chamber. the old adage is not just to go along to get along. you get along a lot better if you get along. or to put it in the old country boy wisdom, you can attract a lot more flies with honey than you can with vinegar. that's the life that our colleague led. some people call it a throwback to the gentlemanly days of the united states senate, a throwback when courtliness and deference -- i hope it's not a throwback. i hope we're not throwing back anything. i hope we will remember the life of danny inouye. he -- he -- he felt this so strongly that when he was a chairman of committee, he didn't refer to the ranking republican as the ranking member. he called them the vice chairm chairman. now, of course, that was uniquely senator inouye but it also was practical. because he could get more done if he's sitting there as chairman and his vice chairman is sitting right next to him. and so we have a lot to learn in these emotional times of
